Sen. Kay Hagan, playing by the rules as they’re written:
The McCutcheon ruling frees joint campaign committees to collect checks as big as $3.6 million from a single donor, watchdogs warn. But the amount distributed to each individual participating candidate will still be capped at $2,600 per election.
..Hagan may run more joint fundraising committees than anyone else on Capitol Hill. Her 17 joint campaign accounts include four Victory Funds set up with fellow Senate Democrats Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire, Jeff Merkley of Oregon, Mark Udall of Colorado and John Walsh of Montana.
She’s also involved in Women of the Senate, a joint committee with Shaheen and Sen. Mary L. Landrieu, D-La. Her other joint accounts include several that divvy up receipts between Hagan, the DSCC and Democrats in North Carolina. Hagan campaign officials said that the Senator’s joint fundraising predates the McCutcheon ruling.
Note Hagan’s campaign spokesperson using the same strategy as her previous spokesman—referring to the senator as “Kay.” Guess it’s an effort to add a personal touch, but watch out Thom Tillis when it’s time to get down and dirty.
